Kellyanne Conway Responds To Accusations Surrounding VP Pence NFL Walk-out…

On Sunday Vice-President Mike Pence and Second-Lacy Karen Pence left the Indianapolis -vs- San Francisco NFL football game after several San Fran players refused to stand for the national anthem.  The response from their political and cultural left-wing opposition was to call the Pence family leaving the game “a political stunt”.

Interesting, albeit typical, moonbat logic: NFL players refusing to stand for the anthem is not a “stunt”, but VP Pence walking out due to their disrespect is a “stunt”.  White House adviser Kellyanne Conway responds:

The professional political left are apoplectic that President Trump has used his massive voice to turn the attention of the larger American electorate toward the cultural war within entertainment, movies, sports etc.

Do not underestimate the level of rabid anxiety this shift creates.  If you’ve followed the truism of politics being downstream from pop culture for the last 2+ decades, you realize that President Trump is an existential threat to the entire apparatus of pop culture.

The splodey head crowd was not prepared for this.  They were focused on destroying Trump on the field of politics.  While that battle wages, POTUS simply used his combat skills to ignite a MOAB in a battle-space his adversaries never saw him approaching.

To say Donald Trump is uniquely skilled for this moment in time would be the understatement of the millennia.   President Trump is seemingly one man, yet somehow, incredibly, he finds a way to surround his enemies.

These latest developments are all bonuses, and hilariously Trump only inputs a miniscule amount of energy into it.   The culture war is like a PT hobby to fill space between time spent traveling toward things of much greater consequence.

Effortless, and yet it makes the left-wing go bananas.

Too funny.

President Trump has turned the NFL into Megyn Kelly. No Fans Left.

      They don’t realize they are loosing public opinion. What the VP did could have been a blip in the news and gone with most non-sports people knowing much about it. Now it’s still being talked about. Between yesterday and today the handful of lefties on my FB each posted something about it. There was zero downside to what Pence did.

        Marx may have said that the proletarian has no country; it is well known that the proletarians have never shared this point of view.

        I see they are losing public opinion but until it hits the league’s pocketbooks, nothing will change. So far, the ratings decline is only small – well within what the NFL feels is acceptable. Many of the season ticket holders stayed home, but I would be curious to see what the walk-up gates have been. Plus, I don’t think I have seen one major national advertiser pull their funding. I could be missing someone.

        I’m just wondering if poorer public opinion will translate to lower profits for the teams. I think it should but I think more evidence is needed. Look, the NFL,as an entity, has not budged one iota.

          NFL won’t be feeling it until low television ratings translate into renegotiated TV contracts. Be patient as that will take months. First evidence will likely come when Super Bowl ad buys take a nose dive.

          On a side note, wonder if anyone has tabulated the overall cost of housing, feeding, etc Obama’s mother-in-law at the White House for 8 long and dreary years? Ditto the puppet master ValerieJarrett as she apparently spent every day and many nights there.

              Cultural Marxists filled the void opened by nihilists, who were predicted by Friedrich Nietzsche when he famously stated that “God is dead”. Christians pray to the living God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Tim Tebow prayed to Jesus. The cultural Marxists who have invaded the NFL “pray” to the dead God of Marxist ideals, which ultimately aims to eliminate all individual rights and subjugate the individual to the collective, and the cultural Marxists aim to do this by pitting the people against each other based on perceived (and often nonexistent) injustices.

            • bwcarey, dead god means THEIR god. The god that encourages narcissist behavior that exposes such hypocrisy on their part. The god that encourages THEM to show NO gratitude for the immense blessings that they have received. The god that encourages THEM to disrespect the ONE nation where thugs and kids from tragically broken homes can rise to the highest level and be heroes to others. The god that encourage THEM to behave as foully and bigoted and hatefully toward a generally tolerant and far more open minded population. The god that IGNORES the massive pain and suffering going on in over 2/3 of the world where blacks and homosexuals and the disabled have no voice and no chance of rising up as have these professional prison wannabes. The god that encourages them to call out any who oppose them in the most close minded, vicious and violent way.

              THAT dead god.

              ANY cause that demands that opposing voices be silenced is outed as false. TONS of data refuting climate change has been thrown out by so called real scientists and as Glenn Reynolds is fond of pointing out, the biggest banshee wailers about climate change do not live in any way shape or form according the restrictions that they would impose upon us.

              The god that tells them that their ignorance is sufficient to impose misery, mayhem and death upon others who have grown up and observed that the world is more than black and white…and that black and white are not in any way acceptable as a basis for identity, as neither is SEXUAL desire.

              You sir are not just a troll, but you are a troll completely unaware that your every word exposes you as an ignorant bigot and hater…all the things you so smugly call others because you project upon them your innate instincts for both of these.

              May you find true enlightenment before you have irrevocably destroyed this wonderful blessing given to you, a one in a billion shot, of being born and born to speak your selfish and misguided bigotry in a nation that is free because people died for your ungrateful self.

          While you are so busy garnering “respect” for those who so willingly DISrespect the USA’s flag, anthem, and the MANY sacrifices made in order to gain and maintain the freedoms we ALL enjoy, you could well afford Vice-President Pence the courtesy of spelling his name correctly.

      bwcarey,

      Sorry, bw, but Colin Kaepernick ain’t no Martin Luther King.

      Here’s a passage from the Rev. King. Reading it, can you spot the difference between the him and Colin Kaepernick?

      It is possible for one to be self-centered in his self-denial and self-righteous in his self-sacrifice. So I am always reluctant to refer to my personal sacrifices. But I feel somewhat justified in mentioning them in this article because of the influence they have had in shaping my thinking.

      Due to my involvement in the struggle for the freedom of my people, I have known very few quiet days in the last few years. I have been arrested five times and put in Alabama jails. My home has been bombed twice. A day seldom passes that my family and I are not the recipients of threats of death. I have been the victim of a near fatal stabbing….

      I have lived these last few years with the conviction that unearned suffering is redemptive.

      There are some who still find the cross a stumbling block, and others consider it foolishness, but I am more convinced than ever before that it is the power of God unto social and individual salvation. So like the Apostle Paul I can now humbly yet proudly say, “I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.” The suffering and agonizing moments through which I have passed over the last few years have also drawn me closer to God.

        What is astounding that a second string football player had such an impact on teams.
        Colin Kaepernick who had all the opportunities in the world in the US and just could not cut it to be first string,
        He found a crutch for his own failings instead of good he is taking his fellow football players with him.
        He lost and they lost. They are now a joke a spectacle not for their talent but for their middle finger to America. Congratulation they are now equal to thugs.

      You can apply for communications director at the respective NFL team websites. Then you can speak for them, after trying to make heads or tails out of the various reasons already offered for “taking a knee.”
      I never understood why someone would take a knee to the flag, when they are asked to stand, like a man of equal standing with his fellow countrymen.
      Some people can’t shake that victim mindset, and take the posture of a broken down man – even if they rake in the millions.
      How about this … NFL players want to do something meaningful? March on the crack houses that a destroying lives and communities – go ask the neighbors where these places are – they will point them out to them. Make the drug dealers and thugs scatter and run. That will be a start. But you got to get off your knees to do that – you have to stop with that broken-down posture of a man who thinks he’s a victim.
      And if you don’t know what a man of courage and action is, go find one. You can’t do better than starting with Tony Evans.

        11 of the 12 were, in a sense. Captured and imprisoned, tortured; Peter was crucified UPSIDE-DOWN. Only John lived a long life. But they have their eternal REWARD, for they believed on Jesus, and put their faith and lives in HIM.

        And I daresay that any one of them was more of a man than any football player bending a traitorous, weak knee on the football fields of America.

        Today’s ath-elites live only for the glory of the moment, themselves, their evanescent piles of cash, with no thought of eternity. They will find the truth of Matthew 6:19-21:

        19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

        20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

        21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

    Rush’s opening monologue was about just this. How Weinstein is the representation of the Left’s hypocrisy. How the Trump effect, after all these decades of tolerating 50 years of the Left running their con game in government, in pop culture, in media, and now in sports, never with any consequences, is coming to an end. Culminating in “We’re not sitting and taking it any more.” And PDJT has done this all by himself.

    As SD said, he has them surrounded. The Left doesn’t get him. And they never will, even after they’ve been relegated to a couple dozen back benches, their power gone, no money, no influence, no ears to hear.

    Two things to point out about all of this that I haven’t really seen here much.

    One, has anyone else noticed how the Super Bowl has become more about the celebrities in attendance and the musical act at the half time show than the fans, the game or even the players? And how they have been using big name bands to do pre game songs and shows? I believe this is an intentional move to infect a traditional American pastime with leftism and it has been very successful.

    Two, we are seeing the same talking points from the celebrities who have spoken out against Weinstein so far and these are the same taking points we have seen in the issue of transgender issues. I see it took the crisis PR teams and pollsters a weekend to get it together for mega star Meryl Streep to respond and we can expect to see others mimic her lead. I imagine Hillary herself had a team at Meryl’s disposal just as Kimmel’s talking points come from Schumer daily in emails. They keep repeating how “brave” they are, what “heroes”. It was the same thing when Bruce Caitlin Jenner got xir(?) award.

    Look for the pattern and understand the strategy. It’s very clear and insidious.

    Trump has held up a mirror and turned on the spotlight. One thing the Progressive SJWs do not like is being exposed for who they really are for all to see. They are sooooo used to be coddled in the media and from previous Presidents. They say jump and are used to be told how high. Well, Trump and Pence are not responding like Pavlov’s dogs and are exposing them to the public.

    The dirty little secret is that they know that if they are exposed, the public will turn on them because it will not be liked. Look at what is happening in Hollywood with movie attendance; it is now happening with the NFL with attendance and viewership. Trump is showing how to push back and to not stand for it. For way too long, We The People have watched and endured the dismantling of the the Constitution and moral fabric of our country. We have fought back, and we have won some and lost many. However, with the Nov. 2016 election, we showed what We The People can do as a collective whole. Trump is continuing this fight in showing us the way in how to stand up for your Country.

    “Jemele Hill, anti-Trump ESPN host, calls for fans to boycott NFL advertisers”

    **The ESPN anchor who called President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter last month is now calling for a boycott of advertisers aligned with “America’s Team.”

    Jemele Hill, host of “SC6,” called on fans to take indirect action against the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they didn’t stand up during the national anthem.
    The ESPN host wrote, “By drawing a line in the sand, Jerry put his players under more scrutiny and threw them under the bus… If the rationale behind JJ’s stance is keeping the fanbase happy, make him see that he is underestimated how all of his fanbase feels.”

    She urged “paying customers” to “boycott his advertisers” if they don’t agree with Jones’ comments. Hill quoted a list of Cowboys’ advertisers in one of her tweets, which included AT&T, Bank of America, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Ford Motors, MillerCoors and Pepsi, and sent a message to her 760,000-plus Twitter followers.

The NFL should not be allowed to act as if it’s from the goodness of their hearts while we’re paying all the costs and extra to the NFL. If they want “Salute to Service” this year let the NFL pay all the costs, without subsidy, or not have it if they don’t want.

    It also creates diversion from their other planned disruptions by keeping them off-balance, spinning over an unpopular topic further.

    It also gives Trump supporters a direct way to speak very loudly by dumping the NFL’s ratings and revenue.

    This is actually a very calculated move to severely unmask and hamper his opponents. It will be interested to see tactics he takes with other major funders and players of the scamming swampers.

    Ever since the NFL forced this play (choose who you give your allegiance to), what has resonated with me in all the comments and coverage at CTH, and Conway said as much, is that patriots choose America!

      Just one guy’s take on that particular portion, seemed Brian was supporting the idea that Pence wanting to be there despite knowing there was a possibility players might protest and he’d have to choose whether to stay or walk out.

      ‘so I will say… Peyton Manning’s jersey is only retired once’ (ie Pence couldn’t have waited for the Colts to play a team other than SF or waited for the controversy to die down… Peyton was being honored at THIS game and he wanted to be there during the ceremony to represent the people of Indiana. IMHO)

      That said, Brian has made a boatload of excuses and obfuscations attempting to passively approve of the player’s actions over the past few weeks. Seemed he and his co-hosts we falling over one another to gush about how kneeling prior to anthem and interlocking ‘in solidarity and unity’ was overwhelmingly approved by fans in and out of the arenas, almost as if someone had told them to say the exact same thing multiple times.
